The GOP’s War on Women reached the Supreme Court this week and, as expected, the Republican-controlled Court sided with the rest of the Party.  Republicans, including those on the Supreme Court, believe that women cannot be trusted to make decisions about their own bodies.  They have also ignored science about birth control, and whole-heartedly believe that any woman taking a contraceptive is doing so because they have uncontrollable libidos.  Thom Hartmann skewered the Court’s attack on women this week, and you can see his take in the video below.
